Helminth Dynamics: Mean Number of Worms, Reproductive Rates

Abstract

Understanding the mean number of worms and burden of soil transmitted helminth infections are considered as important parameters in formulating treatment strategies to eliminate worms among children who are effected by helminth infections (Anderson et al., 2015). We derive mean number of worms in a newly helminth infected population before secondary infections are started (population is closed). Further we bring analytical solutions. We also theoretically demonstrate computing net reproductive rates within and outside a human host.
